Preaching Christ in all of Scripture

Edmund P. Clowney (Crossway Books, 2003)

Blurb Review


What makes a sermon distinctively Christian? According to Clowney, Christ does. A truly Christian sermon from anywhere in the Bible must take into account the full drama of redemption and its realization in Christ. In this book Edmund Clowney explains his reasons for this conviction and gives practical guidance for preachers who share it. First he lays the theoretical foundation for preaching Christ in the whole Bible. Then he gives practical tips for preparing such a sermon. The rest of the book is a collection of Clowney's own sermons that exemplify the preaching of Christ in all of Scripture. For experienced preachers who want to hone their preaching focus on Christ, this book offers guidance on how to do that. For aspiring preachers, Clowney's example is a model of faithful Christian preaching.
